Unschooled V. Schooled Comments

I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to all of your wonderful comments on Kev's blog about his experience with public school, after being unschooled his entire life.

He is completely BLOWN AWAY by all the positive comments, as he thought that the essay was more for me than anyone else. He had no idea that many people were going to be reading it. He is a little embarassed because he just typed it out real quick and never even read through it a second time, so there was absolutely no editing and not a lot of thought put into it.

He is working on a more in-depth essay that is well written and edited, starting from the process that he went through, to decide whether to go to school or not, to his current feelings and what he has decided to do this next year.

Stay tuned:)

Awesome!! We can't wait to see what an edited version will be like. The first one was from the heart, and that is what I liked. It was simple and easy to get his meaning and feelings.

Tell him we love his input and find his viewpoint fascinating.

I can't tell you how much I adore you all...I know, I know, I hardly know you. OK, and you don't know me at all.

But WOW. Kevin's essay was great! I will be using it as I continue to coerce my husband down the unschooling path.

(And just FYI...I was sent a link through the Core Knowledge newsletter...pretty impressive in my book.)

Keep up the awesomeness...expect to see me frequently :)
